The internet connection is bad. We got thrown out of the room twice, because we didnt told 'em the night before that we would stay. Although it was clear we would stay for a while. The workers are really strict. One positive thing is the treatment while being sick, we got good help. Plus the breakfast was nice.

We arrived at 4am & thankfully someone was around to see us in! The staff were very helpful throughout our stay. The location is great, as is the breakfast, a fair bit to choose from which makes a change! Only negatives were very creeky floor boards along the corridors & wifi is only limited to one certain area of the...

We are a family of five and booked a room for an overnight after the 3-day 4 x 4 tour from San Pedro de Atacama. The staff were great - friendly and helpful. The breakfast was pretty good as well. The showers were warm and the beds were fine. In other words, the hostel did the job for an overnight...

We loved the place. The personnel was very friendly. The breakfast was fantastic for the price. The rooms and facilities very clean, cozy and everything in good condition. Warm showers and sheets - nothing to complain about. It is also close to the train station and everything else in Uyuni.

The hostel is an easy walk from the bus terminal, between 5-10 minutes and is located in a mall which has many restaurants, souvenir shops and ATM. The hostel entrance is an alleyway between 2 popular tourist restaurants, so you will need to look for the signage. It is an old building which does create some problems, like the flooring,...

Easy to find, really confortable beds and warm rooms with a heater. Also hottest nicest shower I've had so far in South America, very very inportant in Uyuni! Breakfast could be improved, bread was stale, but otherwise a very comfortable stay before salt flats.

We were fully aware that hostels in uyuni were going to be basic however we were not prepared for piedra blanca. Upon arriving from our night bus at 6am we were told we weren't allowed into the hostel until 10am and had to find a cafe after leaving our bags there. Staff were not friendly but breakfast was slightly better...

We stayed here after doing the salar de uyuni trip as it was recommended in our South America lonely planet travel guide. We wouldn't recommend it. The showers were hot and powerful which was nice as the rest of the hostel was freezing. The flooring was very unstable and unsafe. The staff were not very welcoming and here are limits...

We were due to arrive at 4 am from an overnight bus ride but our bus broke down and we didn't arrive until 7am. We didn't know what to expect once we arrived nor what to do at that early hour. This was our first trip to Uyuni. My cousin and her husband manage this hostel and we rang to...
